Sujatha are Raghu are kids. Sujatha is the sister-in-law (maradalu) of Raghu. They always fight with each other. The parents of Sujatha and Raghu decide that they should be married off to each other when they grow up. Father of Sujatha shifts his house to city to look after his business. Sujatha and Raghu vow not to see each other again after a bitter argument. All this happened when they are hardly 7-8 years of age. Raghu (Gopi Chand) grows up and turns out to be a dangerous brat.

Sujatha (Sada) grows up. She joins a college. She has to travel to her college through a train. There she meets another student Venkat (Nitin), who is studying in the same class. Venkat is the son of a poor widower. He does all odd jobs to earn money for his living while studying. Sujatha and Venkat fall in love. When Sujatha parents come to know about it, they put a stop to Sujatha studies and arrange her engagement with Raghu, who is her brother-in-law (bava). Raghu comes to know about her relationship with Venkat. Still, he does not mind, as she is a pretty beautiful girl.

They arrange marriage in 10 days. Meanwhile, Venkat terrorizes Raghu by writings on walls of Raghu's place with blood that he would foil their marriage and take away the bride with him. At the time of marriage muhurat, Venkat takes away Sujatha along with him. The entire gang of Raghu and his buddies are after the run-away-couple. The rest of the story deals with how Raghu and Sujatha emerge as winners.


Gopi Chand: Gopi Chand, who acted as villain in this film gave a splendid performance with his controlled emotion. Teja has done a terrific characterization to this role.

Nitin: Nitin suited the role of Venkat to the T. He is very smart with his boyish looks. At the same time, he expressed the tenderness and innocence through his emotions.

Sada: She is the find of the film. She is simply amazing. Again 50% of the credit should go to Teja for his characterization of heroine role. She is lovely with her simple attire of 'voni and langa'. There is lot of poetic sense (bhavukatha) to her characterization. Her 'povayya' mannerism worked out well for the film. She completely justified the role of innocent ladylove in the first half and inspirational lady in the second half.

Shakeela: The male fantasy of Malayalam - Shakeela - acted in an insignificant role of 'Bala Saraswati', a lecturer cum physical training teacher in this film. She has two classroom scenes and one physical training scene in this film.

Technical Departments:

Story - Screenplay - direction: Story of the film is routine. Direction and taking of Teja is fabulous. But, it's the screenplay that played fowl in the film. The film is not compact. It has got lots of gaps and loose ends, which makes viewer lose interest on the proceedings of the film. He has shown his finesse in developing and establishing them well. All the characters in the film make an impact. There are a couple of scenes in the second half that really excites the audience. The way Teja reflected the feelings of the lyrics in canning the songs is very impressive.

Diolagues: Dialogues of this film are soft except for a dialogue for Shakeela where she threatens a student by mouthing 'Pisikeshtaa!' (pun intended?) There are two powerful dialogues in the second half (one each by the mother of hero and the heroine). He tried using pun dialogues to maximum effect in a couple of scenes. But, the over all impact is missing.

Music: RP Patnaik's music is good. All the songs in film are situational and they are stitched into the movie so well that after watching the film you would realize if all songs that are presented in audio album are there in the film or not. Jayam music pales out in comparison to the music of Nuvvu Nenu. All the best songs in the film come in the first half in the form of 'Sabbasi', 'Raanu Raanu' and 'Priyatama' (in which teja successfully adapted the 'Mission Impossible' rope technique).

Photography: Sameer Reddy's photographic work is extraordinary. Being a cameraman himself Teja made best use of Sameer's talent.

Analysis: First half of the film would be liked by class people as the style of narration is very poetic. Second half would be liked by masses compared to first half as it has got good action scenes. Over all, it's an average film. Main draw back is the loose screenplay. The second draw back of the film is slow narration. A film would workout well if the director gets the audiences in his grip while narrating a story, be it a class film or a mass film. This film started off on a placid style and the director got grip on audience by the time of interval. But in the second half, he failed to maintain that grip. We have to wait and see how the youth responds to this Jayam.
